First thing - sorry I'm posting this under a wrong subforum, I couldn't fit it in anything else.

 

Anyway, I just have a general question. My laptop's dvd player has bee "broken" for a looooong time now. I don't have the money to fix it or buy an external one. My question is, why does it break, what happens to it?

Tough ?  Could be mechanical or possibly software.  Go into control panel, hardware & sound, then device manager.  see if there a yellow exclamation mark on the DVD/CD drive?  If not click on it then on the drive, an applet will pop up if it says this device is working properly then it may be software.  Either way close the applet then delete the CD and reboot, this most of the time will reload the drivers.  If that does not work replacement drives are very cheap, you just need to be a little handy to replace it.  There are many films on Youtube showing how to do it.
